New Skirt

Yesterday, despite my two boys not napping at the same time, I was able to complete this skirt. Please disregard the shirt as I do not have something that goes with this skirt as of yet.

I used New Look pattern 6843 by Simplicity since I had found the New Look pattern for the yellow shirt to be so easy to follow. I also used this fabric from Free Spirit Fabrics.

This one was equally easy. I did however alter the back of the pattern. The back was supposed to have a center seam and zipper, but I put the zipper on the side and omitted the seam so that the brown scroll pattern would also go down the center back like it does in the front. I also made the waistband fasten with a hook and eye rather than a button. I am happy with the finished product. Now I just need to find a shirt to go with it.


  1. Love the material!!! Good job Those are your colors for sure. Also glad your day at work went well.
